Sound and Light Entertaiment Track Competition
“Six Day”

Six Day emphasizes entertainment with background music by DJs and the use of lights. Its origins are said to date back to 1878. This truck race, which once included popular Tour de France athletes such as Mark Cavendish and Bradley Wiggins, is especially popular in Europe, where world champions, Olympians, and next-generation stars can be seen running up close with a beer in hand.
